About the Assessor
The Town Assessor is appointed by the Town Board for a term of six years. The Assessor’s duties are specified in New York State Real Property Tax Law and generally focus on the maintenance of up-to-date inventory records used for the valuation of real property within the Town of Brighton. The Assessor prepares an annual assessment roll, which is used to distribute the tax liability due from each parcel.
Online Property and Assessment Information
The Monroe County website offers assessments, current sales information, property inventory and maps. Information is available for both residential and commercial properties using the Monroe County Real Property Portal.
Parcel Inventory Verification
We are continually updating the Property Inventory through building permits, sales data and interior/exterior inspections. Equitable assessments require proper data. If you have a change in inventory or notice that the inventory we have on file is incorrect, please notify our office so that we can revise our records.
